Micro Review (I don’t want to spoil)
2,5 to 3 stars.
I was so excited for this book as I am a fan of Roselle St Sismode through and through. She is the epitome of badass heroine!
I also adored the first two books and Amy left us on a huge cliffhanger with things having taken a turn for the worst!
Yet this story completely missed the mark with me.
Did I love Roselle? Absolutely! She is still a fantastic female character.
Did I get my favorite love interest? Yes and with a cherry on top as Amy has a huge imagination.
Was it boring? Nope.
So why three stars and not four or five?
Because I did not like the spin of the story. The choice made by Amy about that world and its evolution completely took me aback and confused me!
I am so not a fan of Matrix and the likes.
What I would gobble up without any problem in a fantasy my mind simply rejected in this story.
I know that many love that kind of trope in sci-fi books and won’t have the same issues as mine but I could not compute or understand.
Clifton also disappointed me and let’s say that Reykin …lost some of his edge that I so looked after.
But on the bright side we get an unexpected and unconventional gruf bodyguard that I really appreciate here.
So is it a bad book? Not at all! It was simply not the book for me. And let’s note that Amy took a risk here in launching this book on such path. That’s a bold choice, a personal choice that I completely respect. It just did not work for me.
That won’t deter me from reading many more of Amy’s books!
Have you read it? Or had any other series with a last book throwing you for a loop?
Thanks for reading!
